4th of July Toes!!

SO I started writing this post HOURS ago in effort to try and get it before it was too late for the 4th tomorrow, but my daughter Khloe had a different plan in mind... Well better late than never!!!

Originally I had this great fun idea to take a bunch of pictures using sparklers and posting them here, well due to all of the fires in this area of Idaho, they have banned ALL fireworks :( This means even the big show tomorrow. I was pretty sad, because I was excited to take these pictures, but they will just have to wait.

I WILL STILL BE DOING THEM. 
( I might just be sneaky and do them even with the ban, and do it over a large asphalt surface or something..hee.hee.) 

Well, I wanted to do something for the 4th, so here are my celebration toes!! I love them, and never do anything like this, which made this really fun, and it took no time at all. DIY below: 
SIDE NOTE: I have dancers  feet, and I know that they are a little beat up... please excuse the un-model like feet used in the tutorial :)



1.) Prep your toes: 
Take off old polish etc. Trim, cuticles, file,  etc. I love the way my feet feel after this part, its a mini pedicure.

( and yes I even shaved off the little blond hairs on my toes because they are ugly, and I wanted these pictures to be pretty. I am also admitting I have those little blond hairs, you know you do too. ;)

I will not be posting a picture of this step because, A.) I think you get it... and B.) I have never met a naked toe that I liked, so I will not share my naked toes with you.

2.) Paint base coat:
Start with big toe, and paint Nails WHITE,  RED, WHITE, RED, WHITE, 2 coats if needed. The big toe must be white :)

3.) Apply star sticker:
I used a glow in the dark ceiling star because its what I had, but those common foil stars would be PERFECT...




4.) Paint over the star:
paint over the big toe with blue



5.) Peel off the star, and clean:
I peeled off the star, and cleaned up my messy paint job with nail polish remover and q-tip. Apply a clear coat over everything, and voila!!!!! you have a flag on your feet:)












Have a Happy 4th of July!!!!!

Feet are kind of a personal thing, so it's kinda cool to see pictures of them here. Super rad idea with the star!
